Please refer to the picture on class story of The 3 Billy Goats Gruff.  Can your child retell the story and copy the map?  Innovation – can you change some of the aspects of the story, characters, setttings, main phrases and make it your own?  Send me a picture of the new story map and a video of them performing it.

You should be able to do this in the portfolio section of Classdojo and if not email it to me.  [email protected]
